“Threat Intelligence” remains a hot international topic in the security ecosystem. This presentation will look at threat intelligence through the eyes of a cyber scientist and cyber intelligence analyst.  The Science of Security was developed as a more fruitful way to ground research, and to nurture and sustain progress while concentrating on core themes such as Attack Analysis, Common Language, and Measurable Security. This talk will cover insights on threat intelligence from these core themes to help remove some of the confusion surrounding threat intelligence and provide attendees with a vendor neutral perspective on threat intelligence.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. The deepest understanding in security is obtained when it is informed from an attacker’s perspective.
  2. The difference between the victim’s perspective and the attacker’s perspective when it comes to producing and sharing threat intelligence.
  3. Benefits of using a common language for threat intelligence:
    a. Shared understand
    b. Automation
    c. Interoperability
